How to overclock Asus P5A?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I was wondering how I could overclock my old Asus P5A (I have a AMD K6(tm) 3D Processor [551MHz] )

In this thread:
Overclocking contest The guy managed to overclock his, but I am still unable to figure out how he did it...

I can try to provide you with as much information as possible.

THANKS

P.S. , If it maters I am using bios 1011.005 and the pc has 192MB of ram, And i dont really care if the pc explodes.

EDIT: More Info

CPU
Motherboard

In the link for the Motherboard, it mentions overclocking, but no instructions, is there something I'm missing, I know how to navigate throughout the bios and motherboard but I am so far unable to find any information on overclocking this pc.

That's an oldy alright!
You may get quicker results with some serious googling!
In those days it was a combo of pin placements for voltage, FSB and multoplyers along with some very good cooling... lots of heat expected.
Basically, note the default pin placements and play with them!

with no beep that usually means youll have to reset the cmos. No vid and no beep means youll have to resert the cmos. Im not sure how to do it on those porb have to take the battery out or search for the jumper.
